King For A Second


Let them all stare, blankly
Wind in my hair, basking
In glowing sunlight, this is my moment.
Working day and night, weary
Trying to get life right, stopping
For a moment to sit upon the King of the Jungle
This statue has held my eye, shining
Figured I would climb so high, remembering
Nobody has a perfect life, but happiness is within reach
Suppose I look crazy, smiling
To me I feel as high on life as the throne I’m perched upon
Ah, now for the climb back down
